This recipe has such a great story that I just have to share it! The other weekend at Seedy Saturday, I met a lovely lady (Sandy) from Twining Vine Garden who sold me some seeds for American Ginsing. I was looking for a plant that would do well in a container and she told me of this amazing friend of hers (Marian) who had recently passed away after surviving cancer for about ten years (I may not have all the details exactly right). Sandy told us how her friend had used American ginsing, and said perhaps this helped. She then went on to tell us about Marian’s wonderful recipe, and said at the memorial service to this spunky and active lady they gave out recipe cards with this recipe and photo of Marian with a big smile and one of these fabulous cookies.
